my pool inlet/outlet have turned coffee-coloured!

Postby Guest » Sat 19 Jul, 2008 04:35


I am quite new to this pool game, having purchased a house last winter with an outdoor pool. Had it professionally opened in May and have been looking after it myself. Trouble is, there pool liner has suddenly developed a coffee coloured stain over pretty much all over including on the white plastic outlet/inlets! I have ordered Relax stain and scale inhibitor and will use that when it arrives but can anyone tell me how I can prevent it happening again in the future?

The only thing is that the ph is quite low....6.8 when I measured it. Can that have an effect on it and turn the water acidic?

Any help much appreciated
